I am the Creator of the universe, yet I choose to make My humble home in your heart. It is there you know Me most intimately; it is there I speak to you in holy whispers.
I know this is more than you can fathom—that Someone so great and majestic would choose to live in someone so small and sinful. Your mind almost recoils at the thought of My perfect holiness living in you. It’s a thought you do well to struggle with. That shows Me you have some understanding of the absolute purity of My Being. Nonetheless, be assured that your sinfulness cannot taint My holiness. The influence goes the other direction: My righteousness purifies you! Delight in this blessed transaction, gratefully receiving My goodness.
Though you are indeed an exceedingly humble dwelling for Me—the One who also inhabits the highest heavens—I am living in your heart because I deeply desire intimacy with you. You are weak: easily distracted by the noise of the world. Yet I want to help you hear My gentle whispers in your heart. You need stillness—outer and inner. Find a quiet place, where the noise of the world is minimal. Then focus your mind on this loving command: “Cease striving and know that I am God.” Be still, let go, and relax in My Presence while I commune with you in holy whispers.
But in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.
[1 Kings 19:12]
“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
